since july, roman, his parents and i are the proud owners of a campervan.
we didn’t make the decision light-heartedly, roman and i had been thinking about it for a long time. pondering about the costs, the endowment we would like to have, the maximum age and kilometers we would accept and the downsides of travelling in a camper as well as the financial commitment involved.
we had already been on a few camping trips and since we overall mostly liked the experience, we decided to start searching for a campervan after romans parents agreed to also invest in the camper, so they can use it as well.
the search ultimately started in may and it took us until late june to finally find a nice vehicle. campervans are very requested, so you have to be fast to score a good one.
we found “burli” (the name the previous owners gave the campervan) at a local camper shop, we checked it out on the same day and agreed to buy it the next day.
it was a quick decision and so far i can only say it was a good one.
burli is about 12 years old but in very good shape, on the inside as well as on the exterior.
we upgraded the camper with a solar panel to supply us with enough power to be able to spend a remote night.
luckily, the camper already came with a built-in ski storage including a drain, as well as with a bike rack.
we have already travelled with burli, visiting friends and family, and went for a 3-week-surftrip to france, spain and portugal. read more about that in the next blog post!
so far, it’s a dream come true for us and we cannot wait to go on many more adventures.
